Bell's palsy refers to the facial paralysis. It is not a sexually transmitted disease. It is presumed to be due to herpes simplex virus infection, which enters the body through nose (air). It has a benign course and most people recover within 3-4 weeks. Treatment consists of vitamin B12, steroids, acyclovir and physiotherapy.
